Headington Amateurs 5 - 3 Cricklade Town
Playing their first home match of the season, Headington stormed back from a two goal deficit to claim the spoils against third placed Cricklade.
Half time 2 – 2
Headington started the second half the stronger, Luke Cuff’s left wing run setting up Alex Luckett who drew a fine save from Mitchell. With ten minutes gone Cuff & Jacob combined superbly to set up Hafiz whose low finish from the edge of the penalty area was too good for Mitchell. Chances came & went at both ends but Headington looked to have made the game safe when substitute Jack Hayhurst, making his debut, drilled in a left footer with five minutes of normal time left. However, Cricklade were handed a lifeline two minutes later, Skyrme’s goal kick intercepted by Adam Brooks who advanced & finished confidently. Nerves were now visibly jangling for the home defence but with Cricklade committing men forward Luke Cuff broke clear from the halfway line & rounded Mitchell before rolling the ball home for a clinching fifth goal in added time.
